Berklee Laptop Purchase Program (BLPP)
Berklee College of Music requires all entering students to own an Apple Macintosh laptop computer that meets certain standards established by the academic and technology leadership of the college. To facilitate this requirement, the college makes exclusive arrangements to purchase computers from Apple Computer and software from leading industry manufacturers. This volume purchasing provides a comprehensive system at a price that is well below educational pricing for these components when purchased individually.
Every academic year, Berklee strives to provide students a known, tested, and supported laptop platform for the curriculum. At times, this package may not include the absolute latest model released by Apple. Nevertheless, Berklee must provide a proven, stable technology environment for students to learn and faculty to teach.
For over a half a century, Berklee College of Music has been committed to preparing our students for the musical, technological, and business necessities of the world they will be entering. We firmly believe this computer purchase program provides them with a unique resource that will maximize the potent music education available only at Berklee and help prepare students for successful entry into the music industry.
